Flight Watchdog API
& Price Checker API
Attract customers to your website. Sell more air tickets.
Let travellers ask your online booking tool to keep an eye on prices of tickets they're interested in.
What is it?
Flight Watchdog API is a universal programming tool that allows you to add the Flight Watchdog feature to your application. That way your online booking tool or travel app can help passengers keep track of the itineraries they're interested in and of how the ticket prices evolve. In the end, that's more sold tickets and thus more revenue for yourself.
Is it for you?
Are you an OTA and you have programmers on your team? Or are you a developer?

What can you build with Flight Watchdog API?
You might be wondering what can this API actually help you achieve. To give you a bit of an inspiration, we used it to build Flight Watchdog as an add-on for users of GOL IBE.
Price Checker API
Enrich your application’s data with results obtained from Flight Watchdog API.
Get access to the data either through our Price Checker API or through downloadable data.
And how can it help you? Imagine that you need to find out prices of flights from Vienna to Prague every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, for a period of 2 months and for a length of stay 5, 10 and 14 days. You simply enter these parameters into the Flight Watchdog batch, and FW then starts checking the availability and prices for your entry every day. It stores all search results in the Price Checker database. You then get data about the results via API and you can verify the availability and price for specific days, as well as get the cheapest price for the defined period. Moreover, you have the opportunity to monitor price development for a given day and city-pair.
OTAs are biggest fans
One of the most prominent OTAs in the Czech Republic decided to use Flight Watchdog API for their online booking engine.
An OTA run by excited young guys who are early adopters of any new technology. They've integrated the API with their own app which generates Facebook campaigns for them. And they're very successful at that.
